Write the number of my days on fine rice paper. Tally them, and tear… Delicate hand molded sheet into bits and caste it in the wind! I can no longer understand the sum of those days nor transcend, The heartbreak of futility or tragedy’s rude temper!

Denying the Spirit that kept them, Bent on destruction, On war. “It’s time to tear it all down!” they say, … More Totalitarian
Immersed in a day-dream, dawdling… Enjoying sunshine on my face… Treating myself to a summer coddling; Took for granted wind’s pace… Not noticing the changed force blowing, Or the storm beginning to race, In my direction; fierce tornado growing!
